Re: [ANNOUNCE] GHC 8.6.1-alpha1 available

Vanessa McHale

The parser seems to be broken. Attempting to build basement yields:

Basement/Nat.hs:15:46: error: parse error on input ‘*’ | 15 | , type (<=), type (<=?), type (+), type (*), type (^), type (-) | ^

I'm not 100% sure where to report bugs for the alpha.

This is the first release (partially) generated using our new CI
infrastructure. One known issue is that the haddock documentation is
currently unavailable. This will be fixed in the next alpha release. Do
let us know if you spot anything else amiss.

As always, do let us know if you encounter any trouble in the course of
testing. Thanks for your help!

In reply to this post by Richard Eisenberg-4
I (really) should have known better: this change is intentional. GHC 8.6 changes the way that * is parsed in types. Specifically, * is always parsed as if it is a synonym for Type (that is, the kind of things like Int and Bool), not a binary operator. If you want it to be a binary operator, you must specify -XNoStarIsType.
